The Berlin based Estonian Arvo Pärt is one of the most important composers of the post-war era. His postmodern style is equally inspired by traditional as by new methods and has earned him the reputation of being a visionary.
Tabula Rasa stands as one of his most widely-performed compositions, as well as a fine example of his mature style.
At once reverent, bleak and timeless, rich with otherwordly harmonies, it shows why Pärt has established himself as an exceptional composer of the late 20th century.
Recorded at Petersburg Recording Studio, November 1995.
